  1. Soak up the urine with a towel

    When you find cat urine on your carpet, furniture or hard surfaces, blot it up with a paper or cloth towel. Take up all of the urine that you can by pressing the towel onto the spot. Do not rub the towel as this will cause the urine to sink deeper into the surface.

  2. Mix vinegar and water equally, and apply the mixture to the spot

    Mix equal parts of water and vinegar in a small container. Pour enough of the mixture over the spot to soak it thoroughly. Let the liquid dry.

  3. Sprinkle baking soda over the dried area

    Sprinkle baking soda over the dried area liberally. You can't use too much baking soda.

  4. Mix four parts of hydrogen peroxide to one part dish soap

    Create a mixture of four parts hydrogen peroxide to one part dish soap. Pour this mixture over the spot that you previously covered with baking soda. Lightly scrub the spot with a towel or a small scrub brush.

  5. Vacuum the spot

    When you complete step four, allow the spot to dry. Vacuum the spot when it's dry. If any odor remains, repeat steps two through five.
